Paul Crookston reports at the Free Beacon:
The FBI and federal prosecutors have interviewed another half-dozen people as part of a federal investigation into a land deal made by Jane Sanders, wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), while she was president of the now defunct Burlington College.
Prosecutors in recent months have obtained boxes of college records, conducted interviews, and even brought a Vermont official before a grand jury to testify, the Washington Post reports. Former trustees of the now-closed college also said that Jane Sanders' lawyers interviewed them to find out what potential witnesses may be saying to federal investigators.
Sanders' spokesman called the allegations "baseless" and implied that the investigation is politically motivated.
"My wife is about the most honest person I know," husband Bernie said, according to the Free Beacon. "When she came to that college, it was failing financially and academically. When she left it, it was in better shape than it had ever been."
"The college closed in 2016 after it was unable to reverse the financial difficulties over which Jane Sanders resigned as president," the Free Beacon reports.
